ER 2 Awards 4
Female coworker of mine was miserable at work
one day. I asked her what was wrong...she told
me it was her anniversary, and she knew her
husband had forgotten. She had pre-teen girls at
home during summer vacation....l knew her home
phone number (pre-cell phone era). I called her
home phone and one kid picked up. Explained to
the kid who I was and that she needed to call Dad
at work and remind him it was Mom and Dad's
anniversary....and don't tell Mom OR Dad I called.
The next day she was all smiles, gosh he DID
remember, brought home flowers and took her to
dinner. Mission Accomplished. Not a word was
ever said about this....
Until 6 years later, when she left the company.
She gave me a hug at a farewell luncheon, and
whispered "my kids ratted you out. Thank you".
